Relative Truth

Preaching Magazine Illustrations

How long would you continue to fly with an airline whose motto was “Safety Standards are Fine for Those Who Are Uptight About It, But Our Engineers Aren’t So Narrow”? How excited would you be about going under the scalpel of a surgeon who told you: “You know, I never bothered much with anatomy in med school, since all medical truth is relative anyway”?

How long would you leave your child in a school where the chemistry teacher said to her: “You’re free to drink from either that container of H2O or that beaker of H2SO4. After all, they’re both clear liquids and we’re only talking about a couple of molecules here or there, so imbibe whatever you prefer.”  (Daniel D. Meyer, “People of the Way”)
